The American Dream and Door County Granary Presentation
July 21 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Presenter: Beth Renstrom
Moses Teweles and Isidor Brandeis, immigrants from Prague, aspired to the American dream. In 1901, this tenacious duo built a local grain elevator in Door County that helped launch their family’s adventures in the new world. Their families produced Supreme Court Justices and department store magnates, and even had ties to the Titanic! Grain elevators like the Teweles and Brandeis Granary (also known as the Door County Granary) were invented in America and changed the world’s food landscape, accelerating food distribution and minimizing food scarcity. Now the Door County Granary is being preserved for all to learn about the time and place that helped America and the Midwest move from log cabin settlements that concentrated on feeding people locally to a world food power. Once a community stronghold, the rehabilitated Door County Granary will again be given life documenting Door County’s agricultural history and as a cultural center for the community. Join us to learn about the history of the Door County Granary, why it’s important to save, and plans for the rehabilitated structure.
